    If you ever feel like killing yourself, just remember that Monika Lewinsky went through absolute hell yet came back with a sense of humor

    It's good she turned her experience and pain over her destructive decision and behavior into advocacy for bullied people.

    maybe Lewinsky shouldn't have touted sucking to the whole world... i mean, doing it isn't the issue. but touting it to the whole world is a little strange. doesn't she only have herself to blame?

    Heres a bit of public shaming for you, John. Why does LastWeek Tonight regionally block shows in countries where you do not air?? I mean, sure, I understand why you get blocked in capitalist countries making sure they protect the profits of corporations. But when you don't air, shouldn't you want an international audience to be aware of your content in a timely manner?? i know sometimes it gets made available after a month, though therre was one vido I tried to watch for months, and was never able to access. So, what is it you're hiding, John??

    As someone who was a teenager when the Clinton controversy blew up, I'm a bit ashamed of the jokes we told. Monica is a badass.

    Buying your way into school is a forever thing. So is blowing the president in the Oval Office. Murdering your family? definitely. They're all permanent stains in different colors.

    Based on the comments here either a lot of people here simply don't remember, or have forgotten. Monica was the one who put herself in the mens room with Clinton. The White house staff tried desperately to keep her away from Clinton, they knew what she was up to. She maneuvered her way into the restroom with him. She made the decision to do what she did. She was the one that failed to keep it a secret. Had she kept quiet and not told Linda Tripp about it, no-one would have ever heard of her. The real villan here was Linda Tripp, not Clinton. Tripp was the one who recorded Monica confiding in her. Clinton would have kept it a secret forever.

    john asks the question that if it happened now, would it have been better or worse for Ms. Lewinsky. i'm going to have to say that it probably would have been better. so much happens now, she would have dealt with hell for a couple of months and then been forgotten to live her life. i'm glad she appears to be alright.

    She didn't change her name for the same reason Kim Kardashian hasn't. Their famous for sucking off a famous man. They're not special, talented or important.

    My dad knew Monica Lewinsky, she used to hang out with him and some of his friends, often at a cafe, although my dad refuses to call her a friend, because every day when they went to the cafe she would always look for any new paper/ magazine that mentioned her and would cut it out, she was also obsessed with herself, in short she was a narcissist and kinda deserved to be made fun of for being involved in one of the two famous sex involving a guy named Bill...

    The story with the aunt from hell is basically a modern version of the woman who spilled coffee and sued McDonald's. We know now that it was completely Twisted from what really happened.

    I don't know if she actually did I was too young to know, but IF she was actually having a relationship with a married man then she deserves all the negative attention and so does he PERIOD.

    *Monica Lewinski is a stronger woman than most... I’m so glad I kept questioning WHY she was being attacked so relentlessly because I thought it was beyond absurdly Puritanical. I’m glad she came out of the experience stronger, healthier and wiser. Good for her AND shame on Leno!* 😡

    20:20 That's why cuckolding a woman who might someday become president is a larger than normal gaffe, even by the standards of being just 22. I don't entirely buy the story that her lack of judgement was in any way ordinary for her age or the times. She was smart enough to get a job in the White House at a young age. That's supposed to come along with a modicum of awareness of the size of the stage and stakes involved. At the same time, she didn't deserve more than a tiny fraction of what she experienced, so there's that, too. I'm glad she's moved past it. I will add that I've long been on the fence about Jay Leno. No longer. His sustained comic vendetta (for the worst of laughs) was totally inexcusable.
